Remembering Who You Are

Remembering Who You Are

by David G. Arenson, ND, ATH Co-Editor of Sacred Living on

“At the centre of your being, you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” ~Lao Tzu

As a society, we have been taught from an early age that we know nothing – we must go to the experts to find answers, and go to school to study to gain knowledge in order to be successful.

If you’re reading this, I expect you’re part of a new wave of thinking that recognizes the innate wisdom that lies within you. This wisdom is not bounded by reason or limitation, nor is it reserved for the chosen few who through rites or rituals have earned the right to spiritual transcendence. This is an inner knowing everyone can grasp; an inner resonance which at its core is bound to our connection to Source. All are invited to reach out and touch God.

Qualifications may be helpful along your path. Reading can be a richly rewarding experience. Yet most schools and universities are still teaching political deceit and propaganda, limited thinking and old outdated theories. Most importantly they educate you in how little you know and how to find the answers you seek in reductionist thinking. Strategies implemented include the teaching of separate parts to isolates us from the whole. Heavyweight scientific ideas are suppressed to alienate students from the truth.

When you give over your power, you lose touch with your innate intelligence. People have been programmed to disconnect from their feelings, to make themselves dis-empowered as “facts don’t lie.”

Our educational system is the product of powerful Government, media and economic corporations. This alliance is self-serving and serves to promote FEAR. The fears are like walls which expand like skyscrapers in our minds, debilitating us on an individual and collective level. Letting go of fear is the path to sanity. Realizing our own innate power and the sacredness of all life – is the next step in our evolution has human beings.

A developed self-esteem is one of the foundations of trusting your intuition. This requires a self-belief generated from confidence in your own sanctity as a human being. Instead of putting your faith in others, put faith in yourself.

Living with love, and loving passionately are the way. God is within us, within every cell of creation. All is sacred, and all is alive. Divinity is inside you and outside you. All is one.

Instead of tapping into limitation, tap into the infinite fountain of universal possibility.

Ask, “if there was no limitation, what would I do…? If I could do anything, what would it be…? If I could be anyone, who would I be…?”

Open your mind to inspiration, and it will flow as naturally as a stream down a mountain pass. Relax and feel the elegance of your wisdom. You are not an accident of fate – you are a powerful co-creator of reality.

Deep down you know who you are. Perhaps you just forgot.
